When it comes to homework, it is so important to keep the kids them motivated. But resist the urge to provide the right answers or complete assignments. Even better, spend time nearby and be there to offer support and guidance, answer questions, help interpret assignment instructions, and review the completed work.
Focus on helping kids develop the problem-solving skills they’ll need to get through this assignment and any others, and offer your encouragement as they do. They’ll develop confidence and a love of learning from doing it themselves. It should not feel like work as we know kids want to play 99% of the time so it is best to encourage them to do it for personal achievements and feeling good about themselves.
Some parents manage to guide their kids through these moments with relative ease. And many others hire tutors. The large majority of parents, especially since online learning became a thig, is struggling home trying to control the meltdowns while trying to focus on the homework.
